‘Masterchef’: Voted SA’s favourite show

2012-12-31 00:00

CAPE TOWN — Masterchef SA has been voted the country’s favourite local reality show of 2012.

The website Channel24 asked users to vote on a list of five shows, and Masterchef was the overwhelming favourite, with 51,37%.

Second was the BBC show Come Dine With Me SA, with 16,05%, followed by SA’s Got Talent with 13,66%.

Older shows Survivor SA, with 13,19% and SA Idols, with just 5,71% were fourth and fifth.

Channel24 did not say how many people voted in the poll.

Masterchef, in which amateur chefs competed in cooking challenges, drew millions of viewers between March and July. Auditions were recently held for a second season.

M-Net’s channel director for general entertainment, Theo Erasmus, said earlier they were very proud of the series. “Fans got very involved in the journey of each participant, until ­Deena Naidoo eventually won,” he said.

Part of Naidoo’s prize was his own restaurant, which he recently opened at Motecasino in Johannesburg. It is called Aarya, after his 10-year-old daughter.
